Moorhead, MN 56560
Hear from NDSU graduate student Kate Savageau as she discusses her research on the women’s club movement in Fargo-Moorhead during the late 19th and early 20th centuries and Sarah Comstock's experience in the movement.
Far from upholding the domestic ideal of the Victorian era, Sarah Comstock helped establish the first public library in the city and institute changes in local education through active engagement in the public sphere. Like other clubwomen, Comstock also helped women gain a foothold in local government by applying maternalist arguments for women’s involvement and leadership in reform activities.
After the lecture, enjoy refreshments from Rustica Eatery & Tavern and explore one of the Fargo-Moorhead area’s most historic homes.
